Song: Motorcycle Drive By
Artist: Third Eye Blind
Album: Third Eye Blind on Elektra records
Lyrics and music: Stephen Jenkins
Tabbed by: Angell Tsang "a-cute-angle@mailexcite.com"

I tabbed this as accurately as I could.  It's an awesome song,
especially when it kicks into the distortion.  I love the drums 
in this song too.  I think they should release this one as their 
next single.  There's no real verse/chorus in the song, and I 
couldn't decide what was, so I'll leave it to you to decide...

 Acoustic guitar in the beginning...

C
Visions of you on a motorcycle drive by,

    A7sus                                                     G6
The cigarette ash flies in your eyes, And you don't mind, you smile,

Fmaj7                         C
And say the world, it doesn't fit with you.


I don't believe you, You are so serene.

  Amaj7                                        G6sus 
Careening through the universe, Your axis on a tilt, 

                     Fmaj7
you're guiltless and free,

                           C
I hope you take a piece of me with you,

                                                         Amaj7
And there's things I would like to do, that you don't believe in,

                G6sus                                 Fmaj7
I would like to build something, but you never see it happen,

                 C                     A7sus                       
And there's this burning, Like there's always been,

     G6                       Fmaj7 
I've never been so alone, And I've, 

C/G* (distorted strumming)
I've never been so alive,


(strum) Amaj7  G6sus F 


                 Amaj7                          F 
and there's this burnin', uh huh, there is this burning,  

                 C/G
yeah, yeah, yeah...


Where's the soul. I want to know, New York City is evil.

                                             Amaj7
The surface is everything, but I could never do that,

                  G6sus
Someone would see through that.

                C/G                 Amaj7
And this is the last time, We'll be friends again.

    G6sus                             F
and I'll get over you, you'll wonder, Who I am.

                 C/G                        Amaj7
And there's this burning, just like there's always been,

     G6sus                           F                                
I've never been so alone, alone, And I've, and I've, I've never been so 


 C (back to picking the intro)  Fmaj7   
alive.......................so alive.  

Outro:

C
 I go home to the coast. It starts to rain, 

              Amaj7
I paddle out, On the water, Alone,  Taste the salt and taste the pain.

        G6sus                 C
I'm not thinking of you again, Summer dies and swells rise, 

                     Amaj7                                        
The sun goes down in my eyes, See this rolling wave, 

           G6sus
Darkly coming to take me, 

Fmaj7          G6sus                    Fmaj7            
Home, And I've never been so alone, And I've never been so alive.
